Vogel Tool & Die began in Chicago when Julius Vogel's invented a punch & die process to notch the end of a pipe, so it could fit against the side of another pipe. Prior to his invention, time-consuming grinding or torch cutting was the common method. Julius Vogel's invention was granted a US patent in 1938. The company was owned by 4 generations of Vogel family until 2009, when it was aquired by Manor Tool & Manufacturing Company, another Chicago-area family business.
Vogel's pipe notchers remain as one of our most popular products and are in use world-wide. Over the years, Vogel's product line has expanded to include tools to cut tubes, piercing, slotting, mitering and much more. Since our founding, our tools have alwasy been produced in the Chicagoland area.
We are pleased to announce that Vogel's President, Tom Simeone, was awarded the 2017 Winzeler Award by the Tooling & Manufacturing Assocation [TMA]. The Winzeler Award is presented to individuals who have provided oustanding service to the industry and the Association. The TMA supports industry by providing educational opportunities, industry representation and services to foster global competitiveness.
